Job Status: Volunteer

Job Description

Prerequisites:

  • Volunteer/foster orientation
  • Home check
  • Volunteer and Foster department approval
  • Foster training session
  • Foster release form

Time Commitment:

  • The length of commitment depends on the reason for the foster request. Some animals just need to gain a little weight and others might need socialization or time to recover from a medical procedure. We also need foster parents for newborn kittens and puppies who need to be weaned outside of the shelter environment. Fostering can last anywhere between one week and a few months. When a plea is sent out, we specify the projected length so you reply to the opportunities that best fit your schedule.

Duties:

  • Provide food, shelter and exercise as deemed appropriate by HALO animal care management
  • Dispense medication if necessary
  • Pay close attention to any special instructions
  • Report any signs of illness or personality changes to the foster department
  • Transport pets to the main shelter as needed for vaccinations, medications and vet checks
  • Foster pets for the entire length of time, until they are ready for adoption
